(view on google maps)

Part of TALK series, Civil Rights Revisited
Discussion led by Annette Hope Billings.

This poetic work crosses boundaries in its sojourn into American race relations in the twenty-first century. Rankine turns a critical eye to everything from tennis superstar Serena Williams to everyday microaggressions on the subway. As one of the blurbs on the back of her book reads, "[Citizen] lovingly embraces and articulates the trauma and contradictions of what happens when one person is spat upon and another person spits."

This book discussion will take place online! Contact the library for more information.
